I was working with a band recording an EP. During one song, the guitarist could not get the solo right. After a few takes, I noticed she was improvising a different solo with each take.
I informed her she would either have to write the solo and play it the same way so I could edit it, or get it down in one take.
Client: Why can’t you just edit all my takes together?
Me: Because they’re all different.
Client: Of course they’re different, I’m playing something else!
Me: Well, that’s why.
The rest of the band agreed with my decision to cut the solo out of the song during mixing.
A reason to break up the band from the Clients From Hell archives!
